Crolla: I Can Fight Campbell Next

Anthony Crolla says he is open to the idea of another all-British lightweight bout and could fight Luke Campbell.

Million Dollar got back to winning ways on Saturday night after two successive losses to Linares, to emerge points victor over Ricky Burns.

And Crolla says he is open to the idea of fighting another British lightweight, Campbell, who already registered his desire to fight the winner of the bout.

“I certainly don’t mind the fight with Luke,” Crolla told Sky Sports News.

“He did very well a few weeks back, even more so following the news that came out about him losing his father, it must have been so tough.

“But he showed he’s world class. It’s another ‘Battle of Britain’ and it’s a fight that makes business sense.

“It’s something that I’d be happy to go with. I’m just interested in being involved in big fights just like on Saturday night.”

“I’ve beaten a great fighter in Ricky and my rankings will be higher,” Crolla added.

“Whether it’s a final eliminator or a voluntary shot at one of the world titles, I’m certainly right near the front of the queue, whoever that may be.

“Whichever fight the team thinks is the right fight for me, I’ll be happy to take. My aim is to become world champion again and bring the world title back to Manchester. If given the opportunity, I believe I will do that.”
